"It was pretty much one of the best moments of my life, if not the best moment of my life," Giuliana told Ann Curry on Monday's "Today" show, about learning that one of the embryos they stored prior to her cancer diagnosis had resulted in a pregnancy. "It was just another world, on another level."

"We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered," Giuliana also told E! News, with Bill, 40, adding, "We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey."

The couple does know the sex of the baby, but they're staying mum on what color they'll be decorating the nursery.

"We're seeing how long we can keep it secret," she said on "Today."

Giuliana, who underwent a double mastectomy in December and is now cancer free, explained that the surrogate lives in another state, but that they accompany her to all of her doctor visits.
